Dell UltraSharp U2410 LCD Display; They Call It Premier Color…And It Is
1 June 2010
Excerpt: A Shutterbug reader, Tracy Valleau, e-mailed me, suggesting that I take a look at the 24” widescreen Dell UltraSharp U2410 LCD display with 1920x1200 pixel resolution. What makes it suitable for digital photography and professional graphics is its wide color gamut of 96 percent of Adobe RGB and the...
Conclusion: Dell U2410 takes the success of 2209WA to new heights. With its two pre-calibrated sRGB and AdobeRGB profiles Dell gives the graphic artists and photographers a very nice and accurate picture.
Pros: Picture quality and colour reproduction, Functionality and inputs, Ergonomics and build quality, Precalibrated sRGB and AdobeRGB profiles, Price
Conclusion: For many users - self styled professionals and home users alike - the current crop of TN panels have shown one thing: manufacturers are cutting corners in order to save money. As a result, picture quality has suffered and continues to decline from one generation to the next.
Cons: - Gamma settings need more adjustment options, - Slight colour gamut shift, - Capacitive touch buttons & their positioning can be very frustrating, - Serious price fluctuations
Excerpt: 1 Flares 1 Flares × Dell have always had a very strong range of panels available, from the strictly low end mass market TN panels for the budget aware audience to the high end 30 inch panels for the discerning designer and enthusiast.
Conclusion: So is this a decent upgrade from Dell? In one word, yes! Users are bound to be attracted to the first 24" Dell screen using H-IPS panel technology, and that in itself is enough to make this a nice upgrade from the 2407 and 2408 versions.
Pros: New H-IPS panel technology in Dell's 24" range, Good colour reproduction once calibrated. 10-bit internal processing also helps ensure smooth gradients, Improved responsiveness and input lag from the 2408WFP
Cons: Dynamic contrast ratio nowhere near spec, Black depth and contrast a little disappointing in comparison with the HP LP2475W, Inability to get decent calibration results from 'custom' profile
